An emerging movement is afoot.
Mid-career women are leaving careers, by choice or because age and higher salaries are forcing them out.
Faced with the possibility of 10 to 20 years until they will be ready to retire, many are asking,
“What’s next for me?”
“How can I use my experience, skills and networks to create a next act that fulfills my dreams and aligns with my values?”
A lot of women have told me after they hear me speak that they are looking at 2019 as a fresh start and the year of their reinvention.
So, over the next three weeks, I’m going to talk about REINVENTION.
Specifically, WHY people reinvent themselves and the key STEPS you should take in your reinvention.
To get us started, here’s a secret about reinvention:
Reinventing yourself isn’t about starting over.
It’s about building on what you’ve already accomplished. It’s about stretching yourself to create a career and life that you are excited about and that fits you.
People reinvent themselves for a lot of reasons. Sometimes it’s out of curiosity or a desire to renew their lives or careers. Others are looking for their next challenge to conquer, after building a successful business or raising a family. Some are forced into a reinvention because a problem touches their lives so deeply they are compelled to get involved.
Are you thinking about reinvention?
What are three things you want to bring with you into your next act and what are three things you want to leave behind? (Go ahead, write them down!)
